      >The cats tend to be active at dawn, dusk, and at
      >night, when they roam their home area search of prey.
      >
      >According to the Department of Fish & Game, one of the
      >most important tips is: do not go into mountain lion
      >territory by yourself. Go with a friend or bring a
      >dog. Always take a friend with you when you camp, hike
      >or backpack in wild areas.
      >
      >Even when lions are encountered, they rarely pose a
      >threat. Most cougars prefer to avoid human beings.
